Jr. High 6:00-7:30 (Gym Opens at 5:45) - Sr. High 7:00-9:00

Hello Parents

This week we will be taking the Youth bowling in place of Youth Group. This is something we do each year and it has been a lot of fun to connect with students in this way. Jr. High will be at the Bowl A Rama from 6:15-7:15. f anyone needs a ride from Gladstone, the church vans will leave the church parking lot at 6:00 pm and returning at 7:30 pm. Sr. High will be at the bowling ally from 7:30-9:00 pm, Church vans will leave the church at 7:15 and return at 9:15 pm. The cost is $9 per person (If anyone needs assistance, we will foot the bill), it includes bowling, pizza, and pop. We do ask that students bring exact change to pay for bowling. If anyone brings a first-time friend, the friend comes free!!!

No Youth Group Next Week

Next week there is no youth group! We will be taking a break for spring break and regroup on Wednesday, April 6. 

Month of April

In the Month of April we will be going through a relationship series. We will start evaluating our relationship with God. It is our relationship with Him that should act as a model to strive for in other relationships. It is from Him that we learn how to love sacrificially, in a way that is honoring, and genuine. So how does our love for God translate to our relationship with our parents? What does it look like to have healthy friendships that will have a meaningful impact on my life and theirs? What does a God honoring dating relationship look like? These are all questions that we will seek to walk through with students in the month of April. 

Summer Trips:

Each summer we take a group of students our to Trail’s End Ranch in Ekalaka, Montana. This is a summer bible camp that is packed with fun activity and adventure. Students will have the opportunity to sign up for all kinds of activities like paintball, high adventure, outdoor life, crafts, sports, and more. They will be put on teams for the week and compete to win ice cream Sundays by playing games, memorizing and reading scripture. They will spend daily time with God each morning and have great teaching to challenge their faith. This year we are going to camp from June 18-25. The cost is $150 per person (If you need assistance please let us know), and you should plan for your student to pay for 4 meals along the way (Fast food), and we recommend some additional money for the Snack Shack. You can register here.

Sr. high mission trip

This year we have decided to take any current 8th grade-12 grade students on a mission trip to Niagara Falls! While we are there we will be working with people who are in need of help with home projects, community beautification, and other needed service projects. This will allow for students to make connections, build relationships, and be intentional about how they interact with other people for the sake of the gospel! We only have a few spots left, you can register here.
